Reading list


By on July 1, 2012

Whilst some would say “You are what you eat”, the more philosophical take on the subject would be: “You are what you read”. I have found this to be definitely the case with me. Several books has had a profound influence on my life. They “shaped” me – if you will – into the person I am today. More than ever am I convinced that the books you read are as important – if not more so – than the people you surround yourself with. I regard the books below as my “mentors”. They stimulated growth in my life.

Needless to say, I don’t necessarily agree with everything that each author says, but I still regard these books as tools that shaped, stretched and sharpened me.

Numerous times have I felt that a specific book was God’s answer for a particular time in my life, as it guided me through the decisions I had to make. For navigational purposes I divided the books in different categories. The books themselves, are not listed in a particular order. Maybe it can be of use for u too.
